A LIVING AND WORKING SPACE

The youth academy plateau will feature three main areas and buildings, in which talented young footballers will live and go about their daily duties:

  • the first will focus on the sporting side (fitness rooms and recovery areas, a medical treatment room, administrative offices and meeting rooms);
  • the second is where the players will be educated (classrooms, a computer room, a laboratory, a documentation and information centre, a staff room, living areas, nursing station, etc.). As for the younger academy players, they will be able to receive schooling in the collèges in neighbouring towns;
  • the third building will contain the accommodation facilities.
